Hey everyone. Decided to try a little experiment! I've never done any kind of crowdfunding, but I figured hey let's try it and see what happens.

A lot of people have been asking about HiDPI and Touch on elementary OS and while support is getting better, the biggest barrier to it being super awesome is that we just don't have any HiDPI or Touch hardware to test it on!

So, I figured I'd ask you all for some help. I'd love to pick up a notebook that I could use to hunt down all the little issues and make sure that HiDPI rocks on elementary OS. I'd also like to start making sure that we're taking full advantage of the new GtkGesture so we can have native touch gestures for things like navigation, rotation, zooming, etc.

After some research, I think I really like the Lenovo Yoga 900 as a test machine. It's something that I would consider using as a daily driver, which I think is super important to really live in that environment and make sure it's comfortable. The hinge means that I can also use it as a tablet. No promises, but being able to test elementary OS in a tablet environment would give me a better idea of what needs fixing before we can consider keyboard-less form factors like Mobile and Tablet.

Anyways, I know it's a bit pricey and it's a lot to ask, but I figure it doesn't hurt to try. Thank you everyone in advance for your awesome support. Here's to making HiDPI and Touch rock on elementary OS :)
